New York Fashion Week has come and almost gone, which means our favorite fashionistas have hit the cobblestoned streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn after attending the Spring-Summer 2020 shows.
While we’re already dreaming about next year’s biggest trends—white suits, peplums, and lime green everything—we’re also delighted that those of us without catwalk access can still be inspired by what’s on the ‘gram.
Here are 25 fashion influencers, who not only embody Black excellence, but also posses a unique fashion perspective. From top editors at Vogue and Harper’s BAZAAR to size-inclusive bloggers, these are the people pushing fashion forward for all the right reasons.

My response to the 15 photographers that willfully ignored me and all my impeccably dressed friends outside the Tadashi show… “Same team, gang gang, same watch, bling bling, all these haters LAME LAME. All these haters, LAME.” Words by young philosopher ZaZa aka @redcarpetgirlz #fatatfashionweek #andigetdressed Dress by Camilla for @11honore 📷 @ju_wels
Body positive activist and fashion influencer Kellie Brown will not be ignored. Brown celebrates size diversity in an industry notorious for promoting one specific body type. She created the #fatatfashionweek hashtag on Instagram to encourage size inclusivity, and in the process, created an opportunity for designers, plus-sized models, editors, and influencers to participate in fashion shows sporting clothes they love that are made with their bodies in mind.
